The verandah has a separate corrugated iron roof with decorative iron frieze and brackets. There is a brick corbelled chimney evident. There is proliferate foliage to the front boundary line making further description difficult. 65 Hampton Road is attached by a parapet wall to 67 Hampton Road.


Hampton Road was originally called Prison Road. It derives its name from John Stephen Hampton (1810-1869), the Governor of WA from 1862-68. He was previously Comptroller of Convicts in Tasmania. His son, G. E. Hampton, was Acting Comptroller-General of the Fremantle Convict Establishment.
House, 65 Hampton Road was built in 1902/03 for Margaret Cable, who owned a number of properties in the area with her husband, James. The 1904/05 rate book recorded a cottage occupied by Henry Lawrence, a builder, with an iron room at the back. This room is shown on a PWD plan of the area dated 1913.
The Cables owned the cottage until 1905/06, when ownership was transferred to James Shepherd. James Brownlie was the owner in 19151/6 and Minetta Lancaster by 1920.
The Lancaster families owned the cottage until 1949/50 when ownership was transferred to Rose Stacey. By 1952, ownership had been transferred to Walter Stacey. The Staceys lived in the house until the mid-1950s, when it was bought by Alice Cole. Alice was still the owner in the mid-1960s, but by 1981, House, 65 Hampton Road was owned by the Ameling family.
